Just one year ago it seemed likely that “Drop Dead Diva” would end its run after just four seasons with a huge game changing cliffhanger. In the weeks and months following the October 2012 season finale, Lifetime announced it had canceled “Diva” as it reportedly did not fit within their “brand” of programming. When all seemed lost Sony Pictures Television, producers of the series, was able to work out a deal with Lifetime that allowed the show to return for a fifth season. Today Lifetime and Sony announced that “Diva” will return for a sixth season in 2014.
Former “Guiding Light” actress Cynthia Watros has been pulling double duty: Not only has the “Lost” alum been taping an upcoming three-day arc for “The Young and the Restless,” she’s also been gearing up to star in MTV’s pilot, “Finding Carter!”
Deadline first reported the news that the actress had landed the drama pilot, which centers on Carter, a happy teen whose life comes crumbling down when it’s discovered that her seemingly perfect mother actually abducted her! Watros (who’s no stranger to bad ass roles, having won an Emmy for her portrayal of “GL’s” psychotic character, Annie) stars as Carter’s biological mother, a tough-as-nails detective who’s hell bent on finding her daughter’s kidnapper.
For more on Watros’ busy schedule, including details on her November run as “Y&R’s” Kelly, stay tuned for an upcoming interview with the actress!

“All My Children’s” Jordan Lane Price (Celia Fitzgerald) may be an actress, but it seems singing is another of the girl’s passions. How do we know? Well, as it turns out, she auditioned for “The X-Factor!”
The actress appeared on the Wednesday, September 18 episode of the reality series with her group, Drama Drama. Unfortunately, the fivesome’s performance, which you can watch below, failed to impress judges Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio.
